Dear Ireland, I’m finally coming to see you!
I’ll be reading at the Cork International Short Story Festival on Thursday, September 8th. The reading is with Irina Kovalyova, author of Specimen.
The festival has a showcase on Canadian short fiction this year, and Zsuzsi Gartner is in residence as the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Fellow. It’s going to be lovely. I’m pretty excited.
Location: Firkin Crane Theatre, Shandon
And I’ll just say this up front, to get myself prepared/psyched: I’m planning to read a short story that I’ve never read out loud before.
If you are coming to the festival, I’d love to say hello! Please leave a comment below to let me know you’ll be there.
